ZMC Hotels is pleased to announce the acquisition of six branded Marriott and Hilton hotel properties totaling 578 guest rooms to the ZMC Hotels’ management portfolio, on behalf of company-sponsored investment entities. Formerly part of the Buford, Georgia-based Ascent Hospitality, the hotels are located in Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia, adding two new states and five new flags to the ZMC Hotels portfolio. Each hotel occupies a prime location with important tourist and business destinations nearby.
In Tupelo, Mississippi, the birthplace of Elvis Presley, ZMC Hotels has added a 93-room Courtyard by Marriott and an 87-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott. In Oxford, Alabama, ZMC Hotels has added an 81-room Home2 Suites by Hilton, and a 124-room Hilton Garden Inn, adjacent to the world-famous Talladega Speedway. And in Georgia, ZMC Hotels has added an 80-room Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott in the historic city of Savannah, as well as a 113-room Springhill Suites by Marriott in Statesboro, the home of Georgia Southern University.
Already well-positioned in the South with hotels in North Carolina, Alabama, and Florida, these additional six hotels expand ZMC Hotels’ presence in the Southeast, creating a strong regional presence to match that in the Upper Midwest and the Southwestern United States. The addition adds 220 employees to the ZMC Hotels’ family and brings the total portfolio to 40 hotels and more than 4,000 rooms across 13 states.
“The addition of these six hotels not only provides additional scale to our critical Southeast region but adds Springhill Suites, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Courtyard by Marriott, Hilton Garden Inn and Home2 Suites to our collection of brands under management,” said John Henry, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer. “We’re thrilled to be welcoming these six new GMs and their employees to our rapidly growing ZMC Hotels family.”
